There’s not much to complain about in terms of the burn.  It stays even for the most part, and has a good draw and a solid, light ash.  It did need to be relit once, though.  The flavors experienced were as smooth and welcoming as the cigar’s outer appearance.  You get a bit of leather in the beginning that is joined by some sweet flavor.  A rich syrup taste also comes into play that is countered by a bit of spice.  The most dominating flavor throughout the smoke is a creamy note that really soothes the palate. 

After it is all said and done, the Cabinet Seleccíon Robusto is one very smooth cigar.  The burn is solid too, and this is one stick that should really appeal to fans of smoother, medium-bodied cigars.  The price is very accommodating as well, at only $6.60 per single for a limited edition cigar.  They also come in boxes of 22.  If you have enjoyed H. Upmann cigars in the past, or want something flavorful that won’t bowl you over, this is a great pick.  It’s even suave enough for a beginner to try.  This stick could be hard to come by, so if you do see one make sure you snag it up.  The H. Upmann Cabinet Seleccíon Robusto receives 3.5 out of 4 stars.

The H. Upmann Signature line is yet another limited edition from the brand with a smooth, medium-bodied profile that is aimed to appeal not only to aficionados but to beginners as well.  Handmade in Santa Rosa de Copan, Honduras, this special release is meant to be distributed at only select retailers in the United States.  The exclusive-sounding Signature moniker paired with the H. Upmann name can definitely produce some high expectations, so let’s see if it actually meets them.

+1 # Is This Signature As Good As the Argenti Original?Richard 2011-02-21 13:01
It should be noted that since this is a Jan. 2010 review of the H. Upmann Signature cigar, it very well could be the "new version" and not the original Signature cigars. The original H. Upmann Signature cigars were rolled by the Argenti brothers at Cuban Imports for Altadis and these have virtually disappeared from the shelves. The "new version," according to Lew Rothman at JR Cigars, is now "made by Jesus Piñeda Henríquez at Altadis, S.A.'s Flor de Copán factory in Honduras." Having really enjoyed the original, I have to wonder just how close this "new version" is to the Argenti original?
